Brown-Forman has released eleven renderings of the new Old Forester Distillery, which feature the progression of the distillery, capturing the architectural design, barrel to bottling process and overall tour experience.

Located on Main Street along Louisville’s (Kentucky) historic Whiskey Row, the distillery and bourbon experience will be a world-class distilling operation and visitor’s destination showcasing the craftsmanship of Old Forester.

The renderings highlight key locations within the distillery such as the welcome area, fermentation room, cooperage, tasting room and bottling line.

Old Forester is the longest, continuously distilled bourbon produced before, during and after prohibition by the same family. The distillery will celebrate founder George Garvin Brown’s innovative spirit and his commitment to making the highest quality bourbon.

Commenting on the news, Campbell Brown, Old Forester President, said: “Upon Completion, the Old Forester Distillery will provide tourists and bourbon enthusiasts with an up close look at our bourbon making process and share with them a captivating story of entrepreneurship and achievement that characterizes Old Forester’s 146 year history.”

Including facilities for fermentation, distilling, barrel making, aging and bottling, the 60,000 square foot distillery will be complete by late 2017 and will produce 100,000 cases of Old Forester annually.
